When Turbobikes and Vaprocars
Climb aeroways to hide the stars,
And Visiscreens convulse and flex
With music from The PortaPlex,
I often flee the crowded night
Aboard a discount lunar flight
Which wisks me where my dreams await—
Please join me there...
It's not too late.
The journey spans both day and night
As we explore the dark and light
Amid a stillness born of space
Where godly whispers still embrace
The dreams of those who seek rebirth
Beyond the confines of the earth—
And through His love our souls commune
While dancing barefoot
On the moon.
Set free from all opposing force,
Our hearts will soar without remorse
And flit about like toy balloons
As we traverse the dusty dunes
Where timeless loves forever gazed...
And yet, the moon remains unphased
By our desire to seek repose
With lunar sand
Between our toes.
Through seas and craters we shall roam
Beneath the moon's protective dome
Until we hear the final call
For our departure; spirits fall
To realize our trip must end—
Back to the earth we both descend
And claim our lives one day too soon
From dancing barefoot
On the moon.
